Typical 1920s WWII Era Jewelry This pin has a airplane propeller over red, yellow and blue with wings. Below on the back ” Lavelle & CO”, something I cannot read and “With DC, Sterling”. I know what dump-picking is like! I started doing it in 1942 and ended it mostly in the 1980s when they closed dumps. There were about 7 years I didn’t engage while in military and college. I was told that O.R., who lived six miles from 3 local small villages about 40 miles northeast of La Crosse WI began dump picking in around 1941 and also ended in the 80’s with town dumps (there were still numerous farm dumps (I found a motorcycle sidecar in one in 1974)). O.R. Used his 1928 - 30 Model A pickup (the only transportation he had) until his neighbor whisked him off to the nursing home (he was close to freezing to death) in around 1990 or so. There is much to story about O.R. and I wish I had time to do a book about him. His nephew trusted me to go through the sheds and purchase things that I wanted. If I was too short on my offers, he’d take them home and put them on a rummage sale. That is where a few pins/medals/mementos came to me from in around 1993 and during a few years after. And, after all the sheds were torn down. I have no proof of origin but just like my 1953 Navy uniform with two medals disappeared after I was honorably discharged, O.R. likely found these in the dump after WWII; and then I bought them from his nephew in the early-mid 1990s.
